    Yoga was so present to me during this interview. My yoga practice has helped my brain calm down with the over-worrying and running unnecessary what-if and worst case scenarios all the time.

    I am very happy there is an emerging movement towards “what works” in psychology, because it is what works, and it simplifies the over-worrying about what college and what classes to attend once I go back to school 🙂
